Product Review: Curl Goddess Curls Gel


I'm pretty sure we've all done this. Whether you are a confessed product junkie or not, it's easy to become curious about almost every product we see. We go into a hair supply store to buy one or two things on our list and walk out with those items and about three never tried before items in a bag.  This is what happened when I walked into Kim's Beauty Supply store to get a diffuser.  I walked out with some plastic caps, two packs of deep conditioner, a hair clip, and Curls Goddess Curls gel....and yet no diffuser.

In my last hair diary, I revealed how pleased I have been with the combination of Kinky Curly Custard and Shea Moisture's Curling Souffle'.  Unfortunately for me my hair needs a lot of said $16 KCC and a small jar lasts me about a good three weeks. Completely forgetting that I bought Goddess Curls for a product junkie fix, I was glad to find it amongst my hair supplies.  I decided to give it a try and this is what my hair did:


Yup. It laughed at me. My hair is way too thick for this stuff. It just...sat there.  The gel has a light consistency and it really didn't give me any hold or definition.  Now I have extremely thick hair.  A hair braider once described my hair as having a million strands of hair coming out of one pore.  This is why I could never go to the same hair braider twice because they all threatened to charge me double if I ever came back.  If my hair were relaxed, texturized or simply not as thick, perhaps it would've given me some definition. 

If you are anti-crunch like many naturalistas are, this product may work for you. It was definitely non-drying which is a plus. All in all, I wouldn't say that it is a bad product. It's just didn't give me the results that I like for my hair. Again, if you are someone with a thinner texture of hair or only like a little bit of hold, this gel may work better for you.

Pros:
- Botanical gel with no sulfates, silicones, parabens, mineral or petrolatum oils (if you like that sort of thing)
- Good price point at $7.99
- Non-drying

Cons
- Not recommended for those with thick hair who desire curl definition
